    Default Tomy Pyuuta game set

    Good Day everyone,

    I need expert help on pricing this set of TOMY Pyuuta/Tutor games I found in a Japan Surplus store. The games include the boxes (no manuals, I don't think the games had manuals). The thing is, I have no idea if they work because I haven't found anyone with a console I can test them on. But based on the condition, they look pretty good.

    The lot comprises of:

    1 - Bombman
    2 - Monster Inn
    3 - Saurus Land
    4 - Turpin
    5 - Frogger

    Value is hard to place. Not sure if there are manuals from what I've seen. Right now there are two people coming out of the woodwork and fighting for Tutor / Pyuuta stuff after being quiet for many years. These, however, are something they already have as they've been going after the REALLY obscure. You have to hit the right people at the right time with these. I'd be interested, but more so so I could scan them and add them to my Tutor / Pyuuta archival distribution.

    I'd be interested as well, but like David said the value is hard to place considering demand is so low save for a small (less than five) group of dedicated collectors. Usually I see people wind up with Tutor stuff in their collection and have no clue what it is or what it's for.

    It's a very interesting machine with some great arcade ports like Pooyan, Scramble, Frogger, Mr. Do and some others. Kinda reminds me of the Colecovision. I have a game for the Tandy Coco called Don Pan, the Tutor is the only other system I know of with a port of it.

    It's a masterpiece compared to the 2600 version.

    That's like comparing any port of Donkey Kong to the Intellivision version.

    Thanks! Yeah, I havent seen manuals of the games as well. How much would you get this lot for? I'm based in Asia right now but I have a brother from California visiting in a couple of months and I can give it to him so we can save on the shipping. That is if you're willing to wait for a bit and give me a fair price
